My brother is very young, 43.   Always has been a loner despite having a big family.  Recently diagnosed with Cirrhosis.  Lactulose, Accucheks, Unsteady Gait, SOB upon exertion, abdomen swollen.  Ammonia levels high, coughing up blood at times.  Is not taking his meds going on a month.  Last recorded Ammonia level was 75.  He is so stubborn.  He drinks off and on.  I don't know how he is maintaining.  Don't know if he eats once a day.  Today, he is extremely quiet.  Eyes are glossed, somewhat bulging. .........stuck.  How do we get through?  We love him and want him to be comfortable but he won't let us help him.  I just want to help him.

I'm sorry to hear about your brother. This must be very hard on you and your whole family. Unfortunately, it doesn't pertain to bipolar, so it doesn't belong here. Good luck to you.
